Placement of short implants in limited bone height avoiding bone graft.

20
A 50 year-old male, healthy and non smoker presented with a complain of: ‘I want to replace my teeth on upper right quadrant’. Following CT examination, it was realized a very limited residual bone height of 6mm. Two treatment options were considered: bone graft and subsequent placement of long implants versus placement of short implants and tilted implants to avoid the maxillary sinus. Supported by the recent literature, it was decided to use JDEvolution® 6mm short implants.
